I went to see this film in cinema upon release and after getting it on Blu-ray, I can still say it's one of the best films I've seen for a while, among others. The film sees Detective Loki (played by Jake Gyllenhaal) trying to solve the case of two missing girls. Keller Dover (played by Hugh Jackman) is the father of one of these children, and gets him and others in bad situations while trying to find his daughter also. The acting is great and the overall feel of the film is amazing. Its disturbing scenes and twisted paths leads you on a journey that leaves you adding everything together and speculating who is the real kidnapper.

This is one film I highly recommend to get hold of because it's definitely a must-see, and with strong characters and interesting writing, it's one that'll have you connecting everything up days after watching it.

This is possibly the most riveting film in this genre that I have seen. It is relentless. Halfway through the film I thought to myself 'this is the closest thing to being on a roller coaster'. You spend the whole film biting your knuckles and hoping that the missing children turn up ok. The acting s superb. You find yourself talking at the TV screen and almost covering your eyes. The drama of it all is compelling.
The film starts with two young girls going missing. At that point the tension is at 9 out of 10, and it creeps up by a tenth throughout the film until it hits 10 towards the end. Of course at points it becomes too contrived and Hollywoodish to be 100% believable but that isn't the point. The point is that this film is an absolutely riveting drama. I was nailed to the seat. This is Jackmans best film and Gyllenhall is very good in it as the one good cop surrounded by useless fat 9 to 5 doughnut eating cops. The supporting actors are ok but Jackman's wife is criminally under used.

I was not planning to watch "The Prisoners" thinking of it as some sort of action thriller taking place in prison. Boy, was I wrong. This intelligent, thought-provoking and masterfully executed by the well-cast group of actors (including Jake Gyllenhaal and Hugh Jackman) film is easily the best thriller of 2013 that will blow your socks off. What starts as a seemingly straightforward case of kidnapping quickly spirals into an unsettling moral predicament.

"The Prisoners", a story of a search for two abducted girls, keeps you on the edge of your seat with the nagging sense of dread, several twists, events and developments that you just do not see coming. It has a vast field of clues and red herrings to let you build your own theories. This is definitely a must watch if you enjoy intelligent, clever films with superb acting and effective cinematography and emotional complexity. Be warned: there are plenty of disturbing and distressing scenes throughout the film, including some unspeakable cruelty that I found hard to watch.

But as a thriller, it fully deserves at least 4 stars!

Two young girls are abducted after a Thanksgiving meal where their two families are celebrating in the home of one of them. The girls have wandered outside to play and go unnoticed for some time while the families enjoy one another's company. Eventually, people begin to notice their absence and then, very quickly, panic sets in and the two fathers (Hugh Jackman and Terrence Howard) run off to look for them. In the meantime Jackman's son remembers that, earlier, the girls were fascinated by a motorhome parked a little way down the street when they had gone out prior to dinner. He tells his father and they go to look for the motorhome, which is now gone.

Enter the police, primarily in the form of Jake Gyllenhaal, who quickly locate the motorhome and its sole occupant and bring him into custody. However, when they try to interrogate him they find that he has the mental age of a 10 year old and are forced to release him after a forensic search shows no physical evidence of the missing girls in the vehicle.

This incenses Jackman's character who decides to take matters into his own hands with grim consequences! This film examines the obvious toll on all the members of a family whose child has been abducted and we witness the harrowing aftermath for all concerned as the tragedy unfolds before our eyes. The movie seems more to have echoes of `Dead Zone' rather than `Taken', as it scrutinizes the almost Gothic weirdness of small town America beneath the Norman Rockwell homespun, 'apple pie' type images that we are often fed.

Surprisingly violent, but watchable. How would you behave if your child was missing and you were convinced someone knew where they were? How far would you go? But, what if no-one else thought you were right and you had already started down a road of no return????

There's nothing particularly exceptional about the story or script but the acting makes it a compelling watch. Everyone thinks they are right which drives the film on but they could have cut about 15 minutes from the 2 1/2 hour duration. Felt slightly patronised by the ending - didn't buy it. There is nothing disturbing to see, all implied so don't be put off. Worth catching.
